During an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, President Donald Trump took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), saying that she was a “poor student” at “I won’t say where she went to school, it doesn’t matter.”

“This is not even a smart person,” Trump added.

Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in political science and economics.

The attack had parallels to when Trump claimed in 2011, baselessly, that he had heard President Barack Obama had been a “terrible student” — even though Obama had run the Harvard Law Review.

Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Trump on Twitter, challenging him to release his own college transcripts so they could compare who had been a better student.

‘Get the hell out!’: Donald Trump supporters freak out when protesters show up to Lindsey Graham event

Published

on

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

Trump’s record in federal courts is the worst of any recent president — as his administration loses case after case

Published

Donald Trump is the biggest loser.

While he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may get a chance to ram through another justice on the Supreme Court before the November election, it may not do them much good.

The Trump Administration is losing case after case in federal courts. Even judges appointed by Republican presidents are ruling against Trump in most of the cases that have been filed by state attorneys general and other plaintiffs challenging actions taken by Trump agencies.

Administrations usually win 70% of the cases brought against them, but Team Trump has won only about 16% of the 132 decided lawsuits. These figures include 14 of 83 lawsuits about environment, energy and natural resources; seven of 53 lawsuits about deregulation; and 3 of 26 lawsuits about health.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe warns Lindsey Graham and other GOP candidates are ‘walking into a trap’

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough ripped Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for lying about blocking President Barack Obama's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Graham opposed Merrick Garland's nomination in 2016 because the election was just months away, but the "Morning Joe" host called out that reasoning as a lie after the South Carolina Republican signaled support for President Donald Trump nominating a justice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg weeks away from the election.

"Lindsey is not deconstructing language there," Scarborough said. "Lindsey's not engaging in moral equivocation. Lindsey is just lying, and he's lying openly."
